east. elections are coming up in israel, in jordan, in egypt, iran and elsewhere. we're seeing in front of our eyes more violent change happening in syria. the reverberations of which are being felt on everyone of that country's borders. elsewhere from beirut to bahrain domestic politics is at a low boil ready to burst out in a way that can affect our interests in very fundamental ways. there are two problems at the far ends of the threat spectrum. the iran nuclear challenge on the one hand and the spread of al qaeda and affiliated terrorism on the other that will continue to dominate and lest we forget within a year of taking office both presidents obama and bush, his predecessor, were faced with previously unforeseen events that fundamentally challenged their middle east policies. 9/11 for president bush and the arab spring for president obama. so there's a lot on the agenda. today we're going to take a early look at what will be and what should be the foreign policy of a second obama administration in the middle east. now we at the washington institute, for us this is just the beginn
of questions about the obama administration and their support. are they really supporters of israel. i have seen survey that has say among jewish voters the economy are still far above their concern aut our administration whichever president support israel, true or not true? >> you will get an answer yes, and no. in some places yes, in some places no. for many of place, israel is a priority. not that it is more important than the economy. we have a number of issues that are very important to us. israel is one of them. for others i suppose israel doesn't resonate in the sam strong fashion, but i don't think, i think this is what is becoming apparent. i don't think the democratic party should take the view wish vote for granted and we have a lock on that vote. people are reassess and reconsidering what is important tohem and making decisions accordingly. >> tom: there was talk about parishes some priests would get out and say, hey, this is how we want you to go vote. do you think it will happen from different parishes? >> no, but certain throughout the country they will have leaders stand up
that year coming up just a week later, israel invaded egypt. and they did it with the secret support of two major u.s. allies. france and england. it was a fight over control of the suez canal. the american president at that time, in 1956, was, of course, dwight eisenhower. republican. he was running for re-election against the democratic candidate that year, adlai stevenson. talk about an october surprise. that year it was eight days before election day. both candidates are forced to deal with an unexpected and genuine giant foreign policy crisis. >> on sunday the israeli government ordered total mobilization. on monday, their armed forces penetrated deeply into egypt and to the vicinity of the suez canal, nearly 100 miles away. and on tuesday, the british and french governments delivered a 12-hour ultimatum to israel and egypt, now followed up by armed attack against egypt. the united states was not consulted in any way about any phase of these actions. nor were we informed of them in advance. >> president eisenhower sounding kind of mad, right? the u.s. had not been informed about the at

what the middle east peace deal is going to be. that is a matter between israel and the palestinians, and the u.s. can nudge and between and all of that. but in the end, if netanyahu and the palestinians are not in the position to bring resolution to this, then at it is not really going to be something that president obama can do. certainly something he would like very much to do. netanyahu -- i mean, now that the election is over, i think we will see prime minister netanyahu have a recalculation of the relationship with obama and how it has to go forward. it has not been close in the previous four years. it has been pragmatic and grudgingly accepting a reality on both sides, but there is an opportunity for that to change. host: do you have thoughts on that, scott? guest: just a follow-up. netanyahu had a personal relationship with romney and was a very secret about who he wanted to win the election and that was not president obama, who applied quite a bit of pressure to israel in his first term to try to secure a peace deal called israel settlements in the west bank. israel felt sor

biased israel view. i can tell you what is going on. i love president assad. i stand with them. there has always been peace there. the women wear jeans, they'd drive, they vote. it is more of a democracy and a lot of ways and here. host: what do you think policy should be regarding syria? 5000 people killed in the uprising. caller: those rebels are not syrian. they were planted there. it is really funny. when obama put troops into israel, i think he did all of this for reelection. i am relieved mitt romney did not get elected even though i did not vote for either. i think obama might do the right thing and cut ties with israel. host: we will go to a report actually on syrian president assad. this in "usa today." he said "i am not a puppet." we have a few minutes left on the first segment of "the washington journal." we will go to pete in rhode island on the democrat line. caller: good morning. i would like to see him focus on the economy. host: specifically what part? caller: let's go with the fiscal cliff coming up. my thoughts were my belief is, and i hope somebody calls and corrects me

on this friday, november 23, 2012. we begin overseas. the cease-fire between hamas and israel has held. in egypt, president mohamed morsi showed his authority yesterday. a startling port grab, freeing himself from traditional oversight. president obama followed through on an annual tradition of calling 10 service members to personally thank them for their service. the washington times and the new york times reporting there are now more state capitols dominated by a single party that than at any time since 1952. the washington times question, is this the answer, secure for gridlock? we'll get your answers. send us a tweet or post your comments on facebook. also, you can e-mail us. we will begin with the front page of the washington times for our question for all new this morning, there headline -- do you think this could be a cure for gridlock? the new york times also has this headline this morning -- we want to hear from you this morning. let me give you the phone numbers again. how did you vote in the last election? did you vote with the intention of one-party rule in your state legislature? wh
, the president has not visited israel once. the jewish commercially -- community -- we feel he doesn't have our back. romney has made a strong point that he will have our back. host: did romney's relationship with the jewish community come up? guest: as a candidate he talks about the fact that he has a personal relationship dating back to time and harvard with ande minister aniston netanyahu that will be benefit. he said the united states position towards israel will be complete support. it was not clear how he would respond if israel tried to take out nuclear facilities in iraq. i think republicans feel they have made some headway, particularly in florida with jewish voters. we will see. host: brian mooney has covered politics in massachusetts for decades. he has been with "the boston globe" since 1988 and has been a political columnist. right now he goes by the title reporter. a story you did last year when health care was a big issue. looking back on the health-care issue, you recall that he went to get his official portrait done. he would be at his desk wearing a business suit and tie. host
made history. [applause] host: this tweet from benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister of israel, who congratulates u.s. president barack obama on his election victory. fort lauderdale, florida. independent line. caller: thank you for taking my call. host: did you vote yesterday or early in florida? caller: a voted early. actually, i went out and did some last minute can the scene for the present, and i will tell you -- can this -- canvassing for the president. i always try to keep myself informed, and one of the things i realized about mitt romney is although he was a good businessman, the businesses that he had or businesses that he consolidated and got rid of jobs. so, we also had another businessman that was a president, hoover, and the country went into a depression. we have a businessman, george bush, that was the president, and our country almost went into a depression after that. people have to realize that when our elected officials are irresponsible by saying we have to be like a household, the government is not run like our household. that is totally ridiculous. it is absol
a viable independent palestine living side-by-side with a jewish and democratic israel. my longtime friend and colleague ehud barak is here. i knowed he would agree with that as both of the most decorated soldier in israeli history and as a distinguished public servants. i have more to say about this later, but i did want to begin by recognizing the challenge that this will surely present. i want to add my words of welcome to all of you. i want to thank bill for being here -- we reallyvery much appreciate your participation. foreign minister -- a good friend and colleague who is a top global thinker, well deserved because of the careful comprehensive views he has developed over many years of hard work about issues fundamental to freedom. of course, i see right before me a wonderful friend and colleague, former senator john warner, who has been a great example of public service, military and civilian, his entire life. and to all our friends and colleagues from the diplomatic corps, and thanks of course to david and susan and everyone at "foreign policy" for joining with the state department
to egypt. right now egypt is threatening israel. egypt is threatening the region because of the arabs spring. we have to rethink the dollars we're spending the egypt. we have to say these dollars are for maintaining a security and a piece. if you are not participating, you do not get them. we have to continue our commitment in foreign policy to israel. israel is our strongest ally. it is our sister country. we need to do everything we can to fulfil our commitment. the military aides we still is a real is that right here in america. when you look at the arab spring, there was a lot of hope that this would be continuing democracy, and we're falling into what has become not secular governments, but religious governments, and we need to be gathering up all of our allies and be making a firm statement that this region needs to be statement -- stabilized. we need to protect the people who serve and our state departments, not in all facets, whether ngo's the state department. it cannot procure them, they should not be there. >> i would like to redirect this back to the representative. he spo
become to them and particularly their strong support for the state of israel. i wouldn't say that every mailing we sent out but just about every mailing that we send out mentioned either obama removing jerusalem as capital of israel from his platform and then we inserting at or it mentioned his call to return to '67 borders or it mentioned the fact that his administration had a slow walked sanctions against iran, and those issues have resonance among the pro-israeli evangelicals. >> jonathan salant is one of washington's most thoughtful journalists. he's been covering this sector for a long time. thank you for your comment. he is the money and politics reporter for bloomberg and he's also president of the national press club. what did you see yesterday and what does it mean for the country? >> in 2010 we saw the secret money in the races. this is going to be a foreshadow in the 2012. it wasn't. obama was able to raise as much money as romney and he had help with some of the super political action committees and outside groups in the republican national committee. but the money was even.
to make israel safe and they forget about the united states, we need to get back to a party, the republican party has to get back to a party for the united states, not for the rest of the world, not for israel. marco rubio, they have prodded him out already for the presidential election this year and for 2016. he will get beat by anybody the democrats put up. the republican party as it stands now, run into the ground by these neocons, is a doomed party. they are a dinosaur. you can forget about them. they will never ever be relevant again. host: ms. moore from rick santorum in usa today -- jim from grand forks, north dakota. the future of the gop, republicans only. caller: i just got out here from pennsylvania. i spoke with pedro couple months ago after saving four year period ho. what took you i came out here for all kinds of big jobs and big money. i'm freezing to death right now in a motel, but i got a great job offer already. i'm happier than ever in my life. there is beautiful people out here and the beautiful red river. as of bald eagles fly over my shoulder the other
, working with steve israel to make sure we had the intellectual, financial, whatever resources to prevail in those races. my second time that i spent was to call people who were not successful in this particular election, because everybody here was getting a lot of calls. winning is very noisy. not succeeding is -- the bells don't ring that much. so i wanted to hear from them, what their views were about how we go forward. and then to absorb the calls of my colleagues to see what their view is. but i -- what i talked about here about changing the role of money and politics is really a very important motivator for me to stay in the leader's office. i think it must be done. when people say that, oh, and i read in the course of this week, money didn't make any difference in the campaign. they alwasted their money. well, that really wasn't true. the president of the united states, the most well-known famous respected person on the planet had to spend about $1 billion to set the record straight from what that other big money was putting out there. senate races, house races. tammy douglas had $
they want the destruction of israel and the the obamates woul, administration did not listen or pay attention. a tragedy in suit. we members that to ask tough questions. >> i will allow you each to make a closing statement. >> thank you. our country is on a train wreck, but fiscal train wreck. we have to stop it before it happens. if we do not deal with that it will deal with us. we have seen that michele bachmann has been in congress for six years. it should not be able to curb the cost curve. should not been able to stop the spiralling of the debt. i'm a business person that will make things happen. i will be fiscally conservative and make this congress work into the heavy lifting. we're not going to raise taxes on the middle-class. >> you have 30 seconds. >> i want to say what it on your id is to represent new. mikmy focus has been on creating millions of high-paying jobs and turning our economy around. and a former federal tax lawyer. i'm here nearly every weekend. i will continue to work for you to turn this economy around if you give me the chance. thanks again. i ask for a vo
and they feel like they're not going to be protected by the united states. our country protects israel and i don't get it. i run into so many people who are $40,000 republicans and mitt romney doesn't have their best interest at heart. host: your prediction is what? caller: i hope obama wins but i think it's going to be a very close one. host: we'll come back with more of your calls and comments and later tonight live coverage of the obama and romney campaign rallies t president in iowa and mitt romney in new hampshire. locations where both of their respective campaigns began. up next congressman paul ryan the republican campaigning earlier today. here is the event as the congressman arrives. >> one more day. thank you for what you've done for your state and our country. thank you. i want to thank you. i want to introduce you to my family, our daughter and our shi son and this is sam and my wife. [applause] you know where this is going. you know that we don't have to settle for four more years like these last four years and you know that in one day we can elect mitt romney the next president of
evidence of that. of t dspite? >> of the dispute? >> ifill: well, richard murdoch. >> israel, rished murdoch became almost the third rail of local politics. even though what he said, you know, was consistent with-- it was-- and not indefensible. there appeared to be a callous, almost disregard for the terrible experience of being raped, let alone a pregnancy coming out of that rape. >> you talk about the gender issue. it's always important to stinguish between married women and single women. >> that's right. >> married women were very strongly for republicans, single women very strongly for democrats. the sociological trend over the past 20 years is there are a lot more single people, men and women. so the numbers just get bigger as the country goes into what they call living solo. >> woodruff: and it calls to mind the strategy that obama very transparently employed, talking about planned parenthood, talking about the position of the republicans on-- not just on abortion but on contraception, and there was a lot of criticism-- has be a lot of criticism-- >> i've heard criticism from
choose obama. in germany, 92%. in israel, polls strongly favor romney who locally supported iran's nuclear facility. continuity and age is important to nations in transition. >> there are people worried about if the brother is going to run amuck. i'm not sure what they expect america to do or how gentle they want the president to be, but they see america as something to potentially save them from egypt. >> reporter: and what about china at the brink of an important party election of its own? >> the election will affect how the world will be going in ten years. >> reporter: analysts say the reason so many europeans could be so reluctant to see the administration change in the u.s. is because they worry about what's forging the new relationship to them and politically speaking to them, change doesn't necessarily have a positive connotation. in some of their own experiences lately, it has only worsened problems, like with youth unemployment. savannah? >> michelle kosinski in london this morning. thank you so much. >>> just ahead, how well does voice." we'll put her to the test after
not be jeopardized for our one true ally in the middle east, the state of israel. this included showing some support for what is become widely dome of the iron rocket defense system. but our focus in the middle east has certainly not stopped there. we've gone to great lengths in this congress to zero in on what i believe is the greatest threat we have to our own national security, and that is a nuclear armed iran. i've been pleased to team with representative ted deutch and senator kirk on a number of bills to stem this -- and confront this threat. our actions have ranged from strengthening sanctions on iran's energy sector to promoting human rights and democracy inside iran and much more. in fact, one of our most important accomplishments in this congress will have been a strong sanctions package which passed both houses this summer and which included these provisions that we authored. finally, i'd like to highlight the ongoing work to pass a bipartisan budget agreement. this is an initiative that i have been proud to advance, starting with the bipartisan letter urging the supercommittee to go big,
